Spring is here…

… and Easter is on it’s way! To celebrate, I made panoramic sugar eggs! I used to make these beautiful decorations with my mom for Easter and give them as gifts. It’s been years since I’ve made them, but I decided it would be fun! I was excited to be able to share these edible center pieces with friends and family. 

Easter Eggs

 

I also made an Easter basket cake! It was red velvet cake with raspberry filling and chocolate frosting. I decorated the sides of the cake with a basket weave. Then I used a mold to make a hollow chocolate bunny for the top of the cake. I filled in the basket with some green grass that I made. You can make green coconut grass by mixing green food coloring with a little water. Stir the water in with your coconut until all of the coconut is green. I spread it onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and put into a 200 degree oven for about 30 minutes. This will dry the coconut. Then all I had left to do was add a couple jelly bean “eggs” and some spring flowers that I made! I was really happy with the results!

I hope you and your family had a lovely Easter weekend! Happy Spring!
